We believe every family should have the support they need to develop and lead more fulfilling lives.

YMCA Cardiff has family based or youth services designed to help children and young people learn and grow into healthy, independent individuals.


We run a number of family and youth based activities at our Youth & Community Hub in Plasnewydd. These include:

●  Open access youth clubs
●  Fit & Fed Holiday Club for children and families
●  Community fun days

More information about these services can be found on our Youth Work page or get in touch via enquiries@ymcacardiff.wales.

Young carers

The ‘Time 4 Me’ project provides support and a break for Young Carers across Cardiff and the Vale. Young Carers are children & young people 7 to 18 years old who help care for a family member who lives with them.

The ‘Time 4 More’ project supports Young Adult Carers (17-25 years old) across Cardiff and the Vale.

For more information please see our Young Carer page.

Alternatively get in touch via cardiffyoungcarers@ymcacardiff.wales or valeyoungcarers@ymcacardiff.wales to speak to a member of the team.
